We're trying to find a way to show category specific "additional content."
So if you're reading a post from Category A, we're trying to have a little snippet of text at the end of the post which shows other recent posts from Category A.
There are a ton of plugins out there which do similar things, and two come very close:
- Latest Post from Each Category plugin allows you to show, literally, the latest post from every category. You can specify categories you want to exclude, but basically it takes the one latest post from every category and displays a long list. Cool, but not what we're looking for.
- Category Posts plugin feeds recent posts of the current post's category - but it forces this into the sidebar like a widget, rather than showing it right in the post. AND it forces you to choose the category beforehand, rather than simply pulling from the category currently being viewed.
It doesn't look like anything out there comes any closer. Really, the ideal would be the best of both these plugins: a specified "X" number of recent posts from the current category, shown directly in the body of the post.
Is such a thing possible?
